Skip the stress of driving and navigating among dozens of different wineries, and let the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley whisk you through the vineyards. Make your way to the historic Sonoma Plaza midmorning, where you’ll meet your guide and climb aboard the beautiful trolley — a lovingly created replica of a vintage San Francisco cable car. Take a seat and enjoy the fresh valley air streaming through the windows as you cruise through Sonoma’s rolling hills and renowned vineyards.

Stop at three different wineries hand-picked for their welcoming atmosphere and excellent wines, and sample classic California varietals like chardonnay, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and merlot (tasting fees not included).

Highly recommend

Went with a group of 7. Paul was an amazing tour guide. The ride was cold in the morning so bring a coat but otherwise great weather and fun to all be together in a trolley. I would definitely do this again!
Great day!
, Jan 2022
Paul was a great host and gave us a good mix of history and fun! Loved that they switched us to a bus with the dreary weather outside; much appreciated. The only thing we didn’t enjoy was the last winery; Mayo. All other wines and experiences were great!

Not worth the cost. Lunch was a bag of chips and a ham panini. Pours at first place were very small for 25.00 pp and four wines. Views at other places were non existent since they were right on the road. Would not recommend.

Number one: site stars if inclement weather we would have luxury bus, weather was cold and rainy, still had trolley. Number 2: The wine tasting we went to were NOT like any others we have visited the week, below scale. And for a tasting host to talk down about a Napa wine is totally uncalled for. Not one winery in Napa did they talk down about Sonoma Valley. So much more professional in Napa Valley. Overall not the quality experience we were hoping for when we signed up. Disappointed, and won’t recommend. Thank you.
